Assassination campaign continues against intelligence officers

 Yemen Post Staff

Unidentified gunmen on a motorcycle assassinated on Monday morning an intelligence officer of the Political Security in Ghail Bawazeer of Hadhramout governorate.
Local sources said Shaker Bani was shot dead while he was heading to his job, pointing out that the perpetrators managed to escape.
Last Tuesday, gunmen assassinated deputy chief of the Political Security in Hadharamout Ahmed Baramadah.
More than 60 Yemeni officers, most of them are intelligence officers, were killed across Yemen since the beginning of 201.
There are two intelligence services in Yemen, the Political Security and the National Security, but all assassinations were carried out against the Political Security's officers.
The National Security stayed more loyal to the former president Ali Abdullah Saleh with the outbreak of Yemen's uprising in 2011, but the chairman of the Political Security, Ghalib Al-Qamish, became close to political opponents to Saleh.
Most assassinations carried out against intelligence officers have occurred in Sana'a, Aden and Hadhrmout, three major provinces which experience alarming insecurity since the popular uprising erupted against the former regime in early 2011.
Yemeni analysts say that Al-Qaeda failed to target Yemeni strategic facilities and it resorted to assassinate high-ranking officers as an easy business.
Leaders of political parties and ministers were frequently subjected to assassination attempts in Sana'a and other major cities.
Al-Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula had called its members to use motorcycles and avoid using vehicles after US drones increased against them.
The Interior Ministry has directed to ban motorcycles with no registration plates in all Yemeni governorates as most assassinations were carried out by gunmen on motorcycles.
Al-Qaeda had claimed its responsibility for the assassination of senior Yemeni commander including the commander of the Southern Military Region Salem Qatan who was killed in last June.
